R-E-S-P-E-C-T…

I feel like walking around and belting out the Aretha tune at the top of my lungs. "R-E-S-P-E-C-T...find out what it means to me"! People are just utterly disrespectful anymore. And I mean EVERYONE! Here's the deal: I don't give a flying rat's ass what anyone's opinions are. Everyone has an opinion. Life is full … Continue reading R-E-S-P-E-C-T…

The Saga of Angry Amy Continues…

Sixth grade!! Magical words, they were, and music to Angry Amy's ears. Junior high was finally here, and she could, at last, participate in a more grown up world. No more recess and tiny desks for her! She would get a locker, and she would get to change clothes for gym class. The last thought … Continue reading The Saga of Angry Amy Continues…

New Look and Upgrade

I decided to take a step forward and make the plunge with this blog. Make no mistake. This is still a personal page for me, and a spot to elaborate on my personal thought bubbles. I find that I work through things best with my writing. However, in the upcoming weeks and months, I will … Continue reading New Look and Upgrade

Notafinga…

I'm not really angry, but am sure at a loss for words. It doesn't feel good inside to consistently feel misunderstood. It's like there's this me on the inside who is constantly screaming and is never heard...at least not truly. Do I hear it in people's voices when they speak to me? You betcha! The … Continue reading Notafinga…

Please fund MY dream…

We live in an age of "GoFundMe" and "Crowdrise" and other personal fundraising type sites where, literally, people can beg for money for just about anything. Don't misunderstand me, I am a charitable individual, and I have done plenty of fundraising in my day. In fact, I currently fundraise for a non-profit organization that raises … Continue reading Please fund MY dream…

Time: A Story of Too Little

It's true that time is precious, and also fleeting. It's also true that, no matter how much we think we can "make time" for things, we truly can't. For instance, I have resolved myself to the understanding that, despite my best intentions, this blog takes a back burner to the incessant barrage of crap that … Continue reading Time: A Story of Too Little

‘Tis The Season…

Every year, the lights go up, the hustle and bustle begin, and people become rats in a glorious maze of packages and bags.  I always tell myself that THIS will be the year that I "feel the magic".  It has, unfortunately, been many a year since I have felt the "magic".  You remember, the feeling of … Continue reading ‘Tis The Season…

The Rise Of The Machines…

Blog is reblogged from a previous site: I am the sole author of this content.    I was born in the time before computers became the bane of our existence.  The truth is, I still remember what that was like...even though I was only a kid when I was introduced to the Commodore 64.  Yep...that … Continue reading The Rise Of The Machines…

“Self-centered” Thinking

I've given myself time to reflect over the past couple of days.  I'm not sure that it's made anything clearer, and I'm almost certain that the muddiness is even muddier than it was before I began to reflect.  At the center of everything is me, so yes...I am being a bit "self-centered" here.  However, aren't … Continue reading “Self-centered” Thinking

Lost In Thoughtfulness…

Truthfully, sometimes I over think literally everything. I think about tomorrow, yesterday, next week, last week, and so on. It gets to the point of me being bogged down in every scenario that upsets me, or that I find joy in. You know that thought of "living in the moment"? I truly don't. I relive … Continue reading Lost In Thoughtfulness…
